The PCR Team

Our team is a family and our greatest asset.


Our team is what sets us apart from other Akron IT companies. Since day one, we’ve had very little turnover—a fact we are extremely proud of. Each member shares our core values and brings a unique set of skills, experience, and expertise to PCR.

Instead of one or two people managing your IT in-house, when you partner with PCR, you have an entire team of experts managing your Information Technology Systems. We are able to dedicate an IT Management specialist to assist you wherever needed. In other words, if you have a question or if a problem arises, we always have someone on-hand to help.
